      The word you're looking for is "Engineer"

        Where are the posts about Google sabotaging Linux? They actually managed to deal quite a lot of damage, and I hope they're backing off right now with their move to Fuschia.

          yeah, it was an engineer joke.. possibly that doesn't translate well (is the US the only place a train driver is called an "engineer"?)

              Maybe Google is interested in improving all graphics drivers on Linux in order to enable hardware acceleration and WebGL in Chrome on Linux.

                Is the UK the only place where the people that work on the actual train tracks and railroad signalling are called "engineers"?

                If you watch a few BBC specials you will learn in the UK, or at least at the BBC, they use the term "engineers" to refer to the people that work on the tunnelling projects under London.

                And no, jokes in the UK do not translate well to the USA, and even worse, the other way around.

                  Maybe he really does like trains.

                    It looks like there called engineer in US and Canada, in England it's a train driver i think.
                    If i would translate my native tongue to english it would be locomotive driver.

                    I never thought about how different we call such a common job position and i never would if i hadn't read your post.
